Peacock Quill
Stem of a peacock feather thread without fiber. Quills used to be used as pens, dipped in ink to write with. Flytyers don't use the main stem of the peacock feather but take a side herl and remove the fibres.( If you want to make a quill just take a peacock herl and rub it with an eraser and alle the fibres will come off )
